Nicknames: Booboo, Benjie, Gizmo, Little Man, the Shadow
Birthday: August 13th 2000
Likes: I love getting a belly rub.
Pet-Peeves: I hate being left at home when my mom goes back to teaching school; I don't like children who surprise me.
Favorite Toy: I haven't found anything exciting about dog toys.
Favorite Food: Whatever the humans eat, I eat.
Favorite Walk: Baskin park --- it's the best, especially when everyone stops to tell me how cute I am.
Best Tricks: I give a little nudge with my paw when I want a belly rub. I like to pose in "come hither" positions.
Arrival Story: When my mom saw my photo on the Nevada SPCA website, it was love at first sight. She went to the Nevada SPCA on her first day off from school and adopted me immediately. It was meant to be. I have the same name as my mom's first dog, and my birthday is the same day as my dad's father's birthday. I don't leave my mom's side, and I love following her everywhere. I'm even nice to her three granddaughters (my nieces) and the parrot (Koko) who my mom and dad call "my green sister."
Bio: I was originally saved by the Nevada SPCA when I was a year old because I was abused. I was adopted by a family with teenagers. Everything was fine for 3 years until a visiting 7-year-old came into the house and got in my face. Although it wasn't my fault, I ended up at the SPCA again. That family's loss was my new family's gain. I am a faithful, loving companion with impeccable manners. I have a few strange habits. I don't play with dog toys, I hardly ever bark, and I prefer to be walked on a leash than going out in my half acre backyard. My mom and dad say that I have brought a lot of love and happiness to our family.
Just a little while ago, my parents came home from a weekend on Coronado Island, and there was a wonderful surprise waiting for them. My wife, Bailey, and her mom sent my mom a memory book with all my pictures and tributes from my Dogster and Catster pals. The book has so many wonderful treasures in it.
Today is my first birthday since I went to the Bridge on March 21, 2009. I would have been 9 years old today. I want to thank all my Dogster pals who have stopped by my page to wish me "Happy Birthday!" My parents and my new little brother and sister are celebrating my life today.
I was tagged by my brother and sister, Chewby and Miss Harley, and my pals, Jake and Darby. I am going to tag five friends/relatives and tell them what kind of ice cream I look like. Then you tag five friends (hopefully some who haven't been tagged yet) and tell them what kind of ice cream you look like!
(Lyle is chocolate chip turtle ice cream...chocolate chip ice cream with caramel and hot fudge swirls. He is self-described "delicious".)
I am definitely marshmallow ice cream.
So let's see how ice creamy five more friends are:
